Friday Blog Roundup

It’s been a while since I highlighted some of the great blogging on healthcare topics:

Also, congratulations to RH Reality Check and NRDC’s Switchboard for their Webby Award honors!

Elsewhere:

Revere at Effect Measure reports on the latest in the case of Dr. Deborah Rice, who was removed from an EPA scientific advisory committee at the request of the American Chemistry Council.

Coturnix at A Blog Around the Clock alerts us that NIH is now implementing the public access law.

Leah Ceccarelli at Science Progress introduces us to the term “manufactroversy” (think climate-change denialism, AIDS dissent in South Africa, etc.) and explains why it’s a powerful rhetorical strategy.

Sean Casten at Gristmill uses a simple multiple-choice test to explain what’s wrong with the Lieberman-Warner greenhouse gas legislation.

Akua at Enviroblog finds Washington state’s new toxic toy law to be less than what it could be.

Tara C. Smith at Aetiology reminds us of the 2006 mumps outbreak in Iowa, and reports on a new article that explores possible causes and ways to prevent such outbreaks in the future.

Aman at Technology, Health & Development tells us how American Idol is raising millions to fight malaria.
